Like New in No d/j as Published jacket. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. In recent years, the study of events and their role as implicit arguments of predicates has been at the center of much important work in semantics and the syntax/semantics interface. This volume brings together fourteen studies by scholars in semantics and the syntax/semantics interface, covering a broad spectrum of research into the role of events in grammar. The papers address the following topics: event arguments and thematic argument structure; the role of events in verbal aspectual distinctions; events and the distinction between stage and individual level predicates; the role of events in the analysis of plurality and scope relations, the mass/count distinction, and propositional attitudes. 381pp. Volume 70 in Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy Series.
